Both of them are located in Historic Downtown Clinton and are worth a visit. Clinch River Tattoo and Coffee will be serving some delicious pumpkin spice lattes and other specialty fall drinks. They also just launched house-made syrups with a variety of flavors: pumpkin spice, hazelnut, vanilla, cinnamon, and more. Be sure to try a Chai tea, too! E.
